About this Book:
This exhibition catalogue presents printed works and
manuscripts relating to iatrochemistry in the Dutch Republic. Antimony, a iatrochemical medicine both famous (among Paracelsians) and infamous (among Galenists) and Theodor Kerckring, chymical physician and friend of Spinoza, feature largely in this exhibition, which is enriched with loans from private and institutional collections.
The exhibition was on show in The Ritman Library from 15 October 2012 until 17 May 2013
